Meylin Del Carmen's story

Meylin is 27 years old, from Granada, is married and has a son. She competed three years of middle school and sells soft drinks, having started out with money she had from a previous job helping her sister and others in a sewing workshop. After she married, she decided to start her own business selling cosmetics and soft drinks. She has her husband and sister’s support and expects to expand her business to increase her sales and be able to offer better service to her customers.

Meylin is asking for a loan to buy soft drinks and cosmetics like perfumes. Now that the Christmas season is approaching, demand for her products goes up daily. She estimates that this loan will be of great help because she will be able to buy products that she doesn’t have. Her plans are to continue diversifying her products to have a better income. Her next goal is to have a stable and profitable business.
